Rants & Raves for Thursday, June 20, 2013

VALDOSTA — Some citizens of old Wood Valley would like to say thank you  to the carriers who deliver the Times to subscribers. Thanks for early  delivery. Some of us take the paper to work and  share with others to read on their break. Thank you again.

Our soldiers go to war to protect our country and keep us as safe as possible. You have some nerve to comment negatively against them. You should try it but I bet you haven’t. Thank you to all our men and women who serve our country risking their lives. God bless them and keep them safe.

When the light turns green, you have an obligation to proceed on through the intersection even if you've been annoyed by someone honking their horn. To do otherwise is to impede traffic and violate the law. Whether you're blocking an intersection or blocking the left lane at or below the speed limit, we don't need vigilantes on our highways.

 I am more concerned about corporate welfare than what some poor person gets. Those fat cats have the best of phones and everything else and are still getting subsidies from the government. And I think all of you would be better off if you did not worry at all about what others have that you do not.

Maybe that family just wanted to enjoy a nice day at the park without being harassed by a church group? They knock on your doors, call your houses, and hand out “tracts” at the mall. That might have been the parents only day off to spend with their family. Can’t you guys just give everyone some space to breathe?

The Brooks County Sheriff needs to work more to keep DUI drivers off the road. I know of more than one that has had recent DUI's and they just keep on driving. I hope it doesn't take someone getting killed to get these people off the roads.

    Estimated that 10 percent of the U.S. population are career crooks, caught and not caught. Crime is the most logical career choice, all things considered. Because our governments (politicians) and their cronies have jiggled all systems to promote crime. That’s how 10 percent puts such fear in 90 percent. Causing great expense in security and causing the great self-defense gun debate.

    I am very disappointed  with our commissioners who voted for this tax hike for Lowndes County. We voted for the SPLOST with an understanding we would not get a tax hike. Liar, liar, pants on fire, is what my mother used to say.

    Here’s an idea. Learn basic math before posting numbers about crime rates. The US has 1 violent crime for every 26 citizens not 1 per 262. Geesh.

    To the ranter about the A/C in the jails, you are 100 percent right. The male and females should be treated equal. Neither side should have any A/C. If I am struggling to put gas in the car to get to work to put food on my family’s table and not running our A/C to keep down our living cost then why should those parasites get their three squares a day, cable TV and A/C? Put them in tents and pink outfits and feed them PB&J that comes out of their own funds. Yes, just like Sheriff Joe out in Arizona.

    It seems people in this town, and especially those in my church are not happy unless they are complaining about something. Today’s earth-shaking rant is that the choir members are too noisy when they change into their robes before the Mass. Give it a rest or you won’t have a choir.

    Funny, the people criticizing immigrants coming here looking for a better life for their family, are only here because their ancestors immigrated here for a better life for their family.

    Of the proposed 75 million that is needed to teach the students of Lowndes County for one school year, 55 million of that goes towards salaries. I don't want to hear no complaints about teachers salaries or furloughs again.

    Is it another sign of the times that people are too lazy to send thank you notes? I’ve bought four wedding gifts and two baby shower gifts since April 1. To date, I've received just one thank you note. It’s just good manners!

    It cracks me up when people say they don't want to be in a business or location where people are carrying weapons. My husband is a police officer and when he's off duty, he always carries concealed. I have a strong feeling that you might be happy one day that one of the hundreds of off duty officers are "packing" if you ever have a need for them!

    People rant on here, but don't bother to attend the County Commission's meeting about the tax increase. I bet you don't vote either. If not, you forfeit your chance to gripe. Just hush!
